The aim of our study was to assess the long-term efficacy of conservative surgery combined with gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist therapy for uterine adenomyoma. We carried out an uncontrolled descriptive study of 285 women who had symptomatic uterine adenomyoma. A total of 186 women with pathologically proven adenomyoma underwent ultramini-laparoscopic adenomyomectomy and a 6-month course of goserelin acetate treatment, and were evaluated semi-annually during a follow-up period of at least 3 years. Patient scores for dysmenorrhea using a self-reported six-point verbal numeric rating scale significantly declined compared with the baseline assessment, from 3.84 ± 0.65 to 0.33 ± 0.57, 0.52 ± 0.86, and 0.88 ± 1.29 at the end of the 1-, 2-, and 3-year follow-up visits, respectively (p < 0.001). Similar reductions were observed for analgesic usage scores. Menorrhagia scores significantly decreased compared with the baseline assessment, from 3.45 ± 1.46 to 0.42 ± 0.59, 0.65 ± 0.83, and 1.1 ± 1.34 at the end of the 1-, 2-, and 3-year follow-up visits, respectively (p < 0.001). Combination therapy for adenomyoma provides an effective treatment option for long-term symptom control and uterine preservation in severely symptomatic wo...Continue Reading

Anemia develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. Anemia of inflammation (AI, also called anemia of chronic disease) is a common, typically normocytic, normochromic anemia that is caused by an underlying inflammatory disease. Here is the latest research on anemia.
